Self employed? What records should you keep....

It's worth spending some time thinking about what and how you keep your records. Good record keeping can help you keep track of your business and fulfil legal requirements.


You must keep a record of the following;

- all sales/takings

- purchases and expenses
- money taken from the business for personal use


 Some of the other items you might keep include;

 - invoices

- receipts
- till rolls
- cash transactions
- sales/purchase ledger
- bank statements
- cheque stubs
- details of stock held
- timesheets/mileage record


You should also keep details of any "capital" items that you buy and sell as you may be able to claim capital allowances.

Any personal use of assets (eg telephone, car) should also be recorded.

You are required by law to keep records for 7 years in Jersey for tax purposes.



Long-Term Care - additional charge on taxable income from January 2015

posted 24 November 2014


From 2015 the Tax Office will collect Long-Term Care (LTC) contributions on behalf of the Social Security Department.  Combined LTC and income tax effective rate notices are now being sent out and should be handed to employers. The rate will be 0.5% of taxable income (ie after reliefs and allowances) for 2015, and 1% for 2016. The declared intention is that the 1% rate is to be held for three years. See here for more detailed information.
